HAGERSTOWN -- The "Summer of '69" is coming to The Maryland Theatre this spring as Bryan Adams is set to play the downtown Hagerstown theater on Tuesday, April 7.

The Canadian rocker had several hits from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, including "Heaven," "Summer of '69," "Run To You," "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?" and "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You." The latter song was on the soundtrack of "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves."

Tickets go on sale at 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 27, an hour earlier than first reported.

"I'm very pleased to get Bryan Adams," said Jenni Hatcher, the theater's executive director. "I think he's a familiar name. I think a lot of people have good memories and really like him."

The show will be acoustic, Hatcher said.

"It's a very intimate theater and an acoustic show is a little bit more intimate with the audience," she said.

A limited number of VIP tickets will be sold that include a pre-show reception at the theater and a photo opportunity with Adams, Hatcher said. Those tickets cost $99. The other tickets range from $35 to $49.50, including fees.

People can buy tickets at the theater box office, by calling 301-790-2000 or by going to www.mdtheatre.org. The Web site allows ticket buyers to choose their seats online.

Hatcher said there's probably no best way to make sure you nab one of the VIP meet-and-greet tickets.
